Great writing in first person, cleverly draws you into Sam Dyke's world of a PI.
He's so laid back, he's almost horizontal......or that's the impression that comes across, but impressions are not always what they seem. He's clever, but seems to give off a lack of knowledge, has a great sense of humour and hidden sensitivity.
While reading this novel, it felt like I was sitting in a comfy chair listened to Sam telling me all that had happened in this puzzling case. Great storyline, great characters, think I'm now in love with Sam Dyke PI.
away a bit and I cannot quite say why.
Sam is a private detective, but with attitude! I wouldn't have been surprised if he'd been punched on the
nose a few times, the way he spoke to people! When a would-be client is murdered, Sam feels guilty for
turning him down and decides to investigate the murder. When Sam's ex-wife pops out of the woodwork, life
I did think Sam spent too much time driving from place to place around the country, just to have a short
conversation with people, when a phone call would probably have done the job. And there were too many descriptions
of towns, areas, buildings, etc. instead of getting to the action. But I suppose it filled up the story.
Also there seemed to be some dispute over whether he was going to get paid for all this work.
Finally, I do so hate it when perfectly intelligent people agree to meet a known murderer in a dark, isolated spot!!!
As if anybody would!
However, this was an o.k. read and I would probably read another in the series some time.
I liked the realistic nature of Sam's reactions to his injuries - he doesn't just get up and carry on regardless, but I do have to say that I wish my migraines would disappear as quickly as his seem to. Whatever he takes - I want some. I could sense his frustration at being arrested and detained when he felt the need to be out investigating himself, and felt the need even more for the police to be doing their job right and investigating the crimes rather than investigating his investigation of the events.
I look forward to more Sam Dyke books in the future.
